This week we wanted to introduce you to a local maker: Bespoke Naturals. We love their company and we wanted to share a little Q&A we did with them. Enjoy!

Q. Where did your idea and passion for this company come from?

A. Our idea for Bespoke Naturals originated from a desire to help a family member diagnosed with a serious illness. In researching healthier, more natural options for them, we discovered how many household cleaning products are quite unhealthy and filled with dangerous chemicals. Realizing the potential negative side effects of breathing in these chemicals, we began creating cleaning products free from harsh chemicals, preservatives and artificial fragrances.

Our idea for the Dog-Gone Flea & Tick Drops for Dogs came from a lovely little terrier that is allergic to the pesticides and chemicals in traditional flea and tick repellents. So, we set out to create a formula that is comprised entirely of a blend of dog-safe essential oils mixed with fractionated coconut oil.

Our ongoing passion for our company stems from the simple desire to share with others what we have learned about healthier living for ourselves, our families, and our pets. 


Q.  What is your favorite product?

A. We actually have two favorite products. First, is our counter top spray. We love the light fragrance provided by essential oils and how well it works around the house. Second, is our flea & tick drops for dogs. It keeps fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes away from our dogs and, unlike traditional chemical repellents, it does not cause them any problems.

Q. What is one thing you wish everyone knew about most household products?

A. We wish everyone knew a product label that says "natural" does not necessarily mean the product is really natural. The term "natural" is unregulated. There are no guidelines that must be followed in order to use the term. Therefore, a product may be labeled "natural" and still contain harsh chemicals or preservatives that may cause issues for sensitive family members or pets in the home. When you see "natural" on a product label, be sure to take a close look at the ingredient list.

At Bespoke Naturals, we never use harsh chemicals, preservatives or artificial fragrances in any of our products. So, you can trust you are using only the best for your family. 


Q. Who makes up your team at Bespoke?

A. Bespoke Naturals LLC is a two-person operation started by friends, Bill and Dedra, with an appreciation for healthy homes and healthy living.


Q. What are some holiday gift ideas you recommend? 

A. We recommend trying one of our gift sets. Each gift set comes in a cute gift box and contains everything you need to get started using our products along with a gift card. For the pet lover in your life that has a dog, we suggest our Dog-Gone Flea & Tick Drops for Dogs. They are convenient, easy to apply, and work well.
